Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Riesling, Sparkling Wine, and Zinfandel are great choices for Southern. In general, there are a few rules that will help you pair wine with southern food. Food-friendly riesling or sparkling white wine will work with many fried foods, while zinfandel is great with barbecued fare. The Schmitt Sohne Relax Riesling with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 9 dollars per bottle.

Schmitt Sohne Relax Riesling

Relax Riesling is fermented slightly dry with a wonderful fruity bouquet and intense flavors of apples and peaches with just a hint of citrus. The natural acidity gives this wine a perfect balance that is refreshingly crisp and leaves your mouth watering. A perfect party wine, or can be enjoyed with a variety of foods from seafood and poultry to oriental food and fresh salads.

Instructions

In a large, deep mixing bowl pour in lukewarm milk. Stir in the sugar, 2 tablespoons of flour, and the yeast. Let stand for ten minutes. Add in the baking powder, salt, vegetable oil, egg whites, and 6 cups of flour. Stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture is well incorporated, you may need to get your hands in there towards the end, and then bring the dough to a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough for 10 minutes. Put the dough in a large bowl, cover it, and let it stand for one hour. Preheat oven at 375. Bring the dough back to your working area and knead it again for another 5 minutes. You want to make sure that all those air bubbles are out. Form the dough into a log and cut it into 5 or 6 equal pieces. Take one piece (cover the rest with a kitchen towel), and roll it out to a size as big as a medium pizza. With a knife, cut the rolled out dough into 8 equal slices. Beginning at the widest point of the slice start rolling it towards the narrowest point. Place the croissants on a lightly greased baking sheet. Continue to do this with the rest of the dough. In a small mixing bowl, whisk the 4 egg yolks. Brush each croissant with the egg yolk. Top each croissant with sesame seeds. Put 4 or 5 small pieces of margarine throughout the baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Cover with a kitchen towel while they are cooling. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container.

Tips

Health Tips

  • You can easily swap half of the white flour in most recipes for whole wheat flour to add some fiber and protein. It does result in a heavier dough, so for cookies, cakes, etc., you might try swapping in whole wheat pastry flour.

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

  • Be conscious of your choice of cooking oils. Some studies have shown that vegetable oils like safflower oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil might actually contribute to heart disease. Olive oil is a good alternative for low temperature cooking, while coconut oil is a recent favorite for high temperature cooking. Do your research!

  • Studies have shown people who drink full fat milk are thinner than those who drink low-fat or fat-free milk instead. Keep that in mind before you decide to swap. If you want to go dairy free, however, you can replace milk with unsweetened soy milk in most recipes.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • If you've had your baking powder for awhile, make sure it's still going to work by mixing it with a little water. If it doesn't fizz, you need to replace it.

Green Tips

  • To avoid antibiotics, hormones, and other nasties in your milk, choose organic whenever possible. If you can't afford organic, look for milk labeled hormone and antibiotic free. It is often less expensive.
